Harry Ewing joins Fairways and FunDays as its newest Ambassador
Fairways and FunDays, the leading Irish golf tour operator, today announced that it has partnered with Mr Harry Ewing, Irish Golf Professional, caddie on the LPGA Tour and co-host of Ireland’s leading Golf Podcast Three Off The Tee. The Partnership was unveiled at the K Club, one of the most prestigious parkland courses in Europe, and where this new partnership will regularly showcase Irish golf to that golfing world. The partnership will focus on enhancing the golfing experience of the Company’s clients and on expanding market for Irish golf tourism. The agreement will also see Harry carry Fairways and FunDays branding on the LPGA Tour.
Irish golf had been growing worldwide in the years leading up to the Pandemic with in excess of 200,000 overseas visitors playing golf here every year. Such volume accounted for more than 1.7 million bed nights and a financial contribution to the economy of close to €270 million. Post-COVID, thanks in no small way to the sterling work of Tourism Ireland and Failte Ireland, the pent up demand for Ireland Golf Vacations is set to be released in a major way. Thanks to the rise of new Irish representation on the PGA and LPGA Tours, with Leona Maguire and Seamus Power joining the more established Irish tour professionals, Ireland’s reputation as a Golf Heaven has never been more evident.
Fairways & FunDays and Harry Ewing will be leveraging his reputation in the golfing industry and visibility amongst the golfing community, to grow business in traditional and new markets.
“We are absolutely thrilled to be bringing Harry on board as our latest Ambassador. Harry will use his recognition and presence as a caddie on the LPGA Tour to grow our business which is exclusively focussed on golf in Ireland and assist us in building better golfing experiences for our clients,” said Joe O’Carroll, director at Fairways and Fundays. “Harry is widely known in the sector through his 3 off the tee podcast and his strong track record. His latest caddying assignment, with USA’s Marina Alex is off to a flying start with her being in contention in her first 2 outings this year, most recently sharing the final round pairing with Leona Maguire on her first LPGA Tour win.”
O’Carroll continues: “Harry Ewing and Fairways and FunDays share the same passion for golf and have shared values in terms of wanting to promote the game to as wide an audience as possible, while showcasing Ireland as the premier golf destination worldwide. We also share the same level of commitment to excellence in customer service.”
During the launch, Harry Ewing said:
“It’s a wonderful opportunity for me having met so many people around the world, now to be able to showcase Ireland to these people. I’m looking forward to introducing many, many new and returning visitors to golf in Ireland, in the knowledge that I will be dealing with Europe’s Best Inbound Golf Tour Operator in Fairways and FunDays.”
